I'm a fan of Freud, but there really isn't much to see here. It's cool to be able to walk around in his former home and office, but in terms of artifacts, there's next to nothing here. A hat, a cane, a sofa (but not THE sofa), but most of the rooms were empty with just pictures on the wall... More

Impressions from places like that depend on your prior perception of a person the museum is devoted to. This place will be interesting to people who revere Dr. Freud but for others.. this is an old apartment with some small number of artifacts that come from a century ago.

Interesting content, not just about Freud’s work but about his life as well. There is a very good audio guide and an additional pamphlet for those wanting more information about the items displayed in the museum. Some seats or benches would be nice in each area as the audio guide is rather long and there is only so much strolling... More

I was in awe to experience Freud's house where the foundation of clinical psychology was established. His waiting room is intact inluding the origial furniture and pictures that inspired his thinking. Visitors can be fooled by confusing information flanking the entrance. Look around the doorpost an ring the tiny bell to initiate entry.

With a multilingual audioguide, you havé the opportunity to walk in the Vienna appartement of Freud. A big part of the furniture is in London, but you have here some pieces of furniture, a lot of photos and films you can watch on screens

I fortunately, was both of those things and enjoyed some of the exhibits. With that said, if not interested, then best to skip.

Interesting video by Anna Freud. However documentation could be better organized and explained in English through audio phone. The whole experience was emotional , from someone who was educated on his ideas. Other psychological schools are more dominant nowadays , however , Freud , should never be forgotten. His ideas are still the basis for the psychoanalytical understanding of the... More

The museum is included on the Vienna pass if you get one as we did. It's a small museum but there are a few interesting pieces. The audio guide isn't bad but a little confusing at times definitely use the map and booklet you are given. I think it has potential but it needs a small bit more development. I... More

I am not even a clinician or a fan of Freud's theories but I had to pay homage to his titanic influence. If you are expecting to see his famous sofa, you will be disappointed. But if you are interested in reading the history of his life and work in Vienna (provided in English text and audio) - and the... More

As others note, there is little of Freud in evidence save a few bits of his massive collections. If you are in the biz, though, it is daunting to set foot in the home and office once occupied by Prof. Dr. Sigm. Freud.

Staying in Serviten Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
Serviten Quarter
The Serviten Quarter is an inner city neighborhood with many private charms. Popular with French and American expats, Sigmund Freud’s neighborhood boasts his former practice and apartments, now turned into a museum. Stunning Liechtenstein Garden Palace houses the private art collection of Prince Adam of Liechtenstein. Romantic Strudlhofstiege close to the palace is a fantastic photo spot. With their small independent shops and eateries, the main streets of Liechtensteinstrasse, Porzellangasse and Servitengasse reveal much of this area’s character. Peek into baroque Serviten Church, with its richly decorated dome and walls. At the Old Jewish cemetery in Seegasse you can see one of the most precious cemeteries in Europe with tombstones almost 500 years old.
